You can sand it and get the Ford OE paint and repaint them, or you can find a junkyard and get that piece replaced for a few bucks. Whatever you wanna do.

sand em down.... but you will have to repaint.... you can use aircraft paint stripper but it might remove the plastic as well lol.... paint thinner may also cut it off.

I was thinking paint thinner too, but that might be to strong.

I actually bought mine from someone, but they were professionally done. I could go get pics, but I think it's raining. I might later. They have a high gloss, and show reflections.

I think your best bet is to probably shop around at some junkyards and look for some. The pieces will cost you quite a bit from ford, but I dunno how many Mustangs there are in Canada...?

I'll try to get some tomorrow.

Actually, if you like the look of color matched interior, you could take those pieces down to a good paint shop and let them color match them to your car.

thanks for all the help. i tryed to find some at the junkyard no luck.so i tryed to just repaint then 1st mistake paint all dryed and cracked i think it reacted with the silver paint some how so a few hours of sanding i managed to get both layers off but the sanding and scraping with the razor blade left the pieces in rough shape. I took dom advice and painted them white untill i can find new ones. thanks again for your help. here is the out come what do you think.
